Business Operations Managers can accuse you of doing things, without supporting statements with evidence. The Business Operations Manager in some stores believe they know better than lawyers, and the Police. Even though, they do not come from a academic background. Just from retail. You are just a number in the company. They do not appreciate staff who work hard, and make good sales. They are always advertising for Retail Assistants, because they have a high turnover. Workloads can be unfair if the Pharmacist favours employees. The same with rosters if you are not in favour chance's are you can get the worse roster. There products are overpriced, which means selling meeting KPI's is difficult. A lot of what they sell is not wanted by their customers. National Pharmacies do not realise that Chemist Warehouse has smashed the market. Prescriptions are much cheaper at Chemist Warehouse, and greater selection of products, at much cheaper prices than National Pharmacies.
Unfortunately the team culture was competitive rather than collaborating and positive. Don’t expect management to be fair and just as they act more favourably and selective to some. Staff training online is extensive and ongoing. There is an expectation to sell customers an annual membership ensuring discounts. The pay rate is good paid weekly and staff get a free membership.
Good company to work for. Management is great. Heaps of learning opportunities if wanted. Very welcoming and they treat their staff great. I personally LOVED working for National Pharmacies. Just wish that they owned more pharmacies in Victoria. I would be willing to work for them again in a heartbeat.
Very slow paced working environment. Non progressive in terms of keeping up with technology and meeting customers needs. Over the years that I worked at NP there were and continue to be redundancies and restructures. Males put into managerial roles and female equivalents re positioned. There is poor workplace culture in this company The best part of the day was interacting with product and service providers.
membership + extra 5% discount
I enjoy the environment where i am able to use my skills and expertise which i have been trained for and get a lot of satisfaction with the outcomes and overcoming challenges. I'm very much a team player and get along very well my colleagues as well as the customers.
excellent training and standards.
being employed as casual restricts family planning.
